Sababth Moments - Sunrise, Sunset

Sabbath moments are a way of taking time to rest in God, to enjoy God in silence or in nature. The word sabbath comes from a Hebrew word meaning "cease." And that is what we need to do sometimes, cease our activity and live in the moment and breathe in God.
I invite you to share your Sabbath moment(s) here on Saturdays. Be sure to sign into Mr. Linky below!

After days of packing and preparing and looking for a new home, we were feeling pretty tired and stressed out. A few months ago, before selling our home, we had made reservations to go to a beach for the weekend. We decided to keep those reservations, thinking we were going to need a break right about now.
We were right. We did need a break.
So we pulled out some suitcases, found some clothes that were not hidden away in a box somewhere, and headed for the beach.
And what a great idea that was! We could just feel the stress running out of our pores!
And some kind lady offered to take our picture while watching the sunset one evening. You cannot see our faces too well but that sunset is beautiful eh?
And below these pictures is one of a sunrise on my way to work. God is good!

That pinkish tinge to the sky seems uniquely Floridian.

So glad you and hubby had time to relax and enjoy yourselves. Even Jesus had to head to the mountains to relax and pray after the stress of the crowds.

Barb, thank you for that reminder about Jesus relaxing. We headed to the beach and it just calmed us right down! God bless!

. A few thoughts on living in the truth. I need to live in reality. I refuse to play games, wear masks and costumes to fit into a false persona which I have crafted in my own mind.

Colleen said...

Melanie, I prefer to live in reality too. I wore masks for a long time. No more.
